Can you giv eore detail on what you are trying to do? Do your switch/es support VLAN's?  Basically when you create a port group under Configuration -> Networking -> Add Networking -> Virtual Machine you can add a VLAN ID in under the port group name. As long as you only use them internally (ie with a virtual firewall that understands VLAN tags) or if you switches understand VLAN tags then this should work.
